The Jacksonville Jaguars may have lost confidence in Blake Bortles after the quarterback’s down season in 2016, but are they desperate enough to draft his replacement with the No. 4 overall pick? Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole reported on Thursday that there have been some rumblings about the Jaguars using their first-round pick on former Clemson star Deshaun Watson. Watson’s draft stock has been somewhat of a mystery, as mock drafts have him going anywhere from the first six picks or so to the end of the first round. Some analysts even believe he will be the first quarterback taken — ahead of North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky. Giving credence to Cole’s report, Pete Prisco of CBS Sports added that he has heard new Jaguars president of football operations Tom Coughlin is very high on Watson.
